    Re: EATX to ATX adapter wanted

    Well my Ali Express order from 29 July arrived today. I'd basically given up on it as I'd never had any response to emails, but waddya know.
    Of course I don't actually need it now, but it can add to...

    Re: Wifi from the mailbox?

    That's pretty much the conclusion I'd come to. Of course there is only so much I can lengthen it before I run out of room in the mailbox...

    Re: Wifi from the mailbox?

    I've come up against an interesting little problem with the microswitch. Ive created a plate which swivels when anything is placed on it, and I have it balanced so that it will move with the weight...

    Re: Can I move %APPDATA% ?

    I've been using Treesize which does a similar job. I just installed windirstat to check it out and I'm not sure it is an improvement. The coloured map of the file distribution is spectacular but not...

    Re: Can I move %APPDATA% ?

    I've sort of done that already LOL. I've shrunk another partition and expanded the C: partition several times. The problem is, it just keeps growing.
    I've just had a closer look at what is going on...

    Can I move %APPDATA% ?

    I'm running out of space on Drive C.
    One major space hog is my APPDATA folder - about 65GB atm. I would like to move it somewhere else, but I've seen some websites that say you can't/shouldn't do it...

    Re: Landline phone battery life

    I've just looked on the Uniden website and it says 10 hours talk time for the 1625, so now I really don't know what is going on. I might try giving them a ring. I think their help is OZ based, so I...

    That looks like a neat idea, but I think I see some problems. The interruptible beam is between those two posts, right? In which case I think it would be difficult to position so that mail passed...

    Re: Landline phone battery life

    I've just had a long phone convo with my brother in Sydney on another handset, (same Uniden brand and model) and that one died after about 40 mins as well. So I'm wondering now whether it is just a...

    As I have no kids to inherit anything I've even less reason to scrimp. I do have several generations of nieces and nephews though, so they'll probably get something.

    Re: Wifi from the mailbox?

    I think for what I am trying to do and its importance in the grand scheme of things, what I have will be quite enough. Maybe when I come to update my smart(ish) house MQTT might be worth a look.

    I'm sure the phone will be good enough for me, and I think the battery life will be OK too, as I don 't have it stuck to my ear all day. It seems to have had nearly all overall positive reviews. I...
